My last adventure with my friend, Clairey, was before the pandemic of 2020 that started in 2019. Good grief. Well, I ended up driving to Wyoming to spend a post birthday trip weekend with her and her family in August. They really showed this girl a good time. Great friends, fish and food always make a good trip. I do not like hot summer weather. So, I headed out to find some cooler fishing days that the Jackson Hole area has. The frost on my car the next day told me that I was in the right place!
I love Wyoming. I think that most of my best friends know that. Well, here's another reason.
Surprise! Yes, it is a grocery store. I thought that I was in heaven. And I hadn't even been to the river yet. Haha. This is not just your every day grocery chain. There are only a handful of these in Idaho and Wyoming, I believe. And yes, I have requested that they come to Utah. The best deli and bakery that I have ever seen in a market. Needless to say, we stopped every morning that I was there. =) Yummy doughnuts for breakfast and the BEST sandwiches for lunch.
The fruit and veggie trays were better than the ones we have. Haha. I'm so weird.
Ok. Let's get back to fishing with Clairey, Cody, and Tanner.
Two days of floating on the SF of the Snake. It was a bit slow, but we still got into fish. And the snacks and lunch were... well, you know. Broulim's best!!! Haha.
We also had a great meal after fishing. A bit of seafood flare at the Snake River Roadhouse Grill in Swan Valley, Idaho. I couldn't believe how this boy of theirs could eat! Cody and Tanner were braver than me. I'm not into the fancy appetizers.
Calamari, mussels, and clams??? They seemed to enjoy it.
My hamburger was great. =)
We hit a dry fly paradise on the third day. One of my favorite spots just because of the trees.
Clairey found one of the best cutts in the river...
And I released a few myself...
At night, I played cards with Tanner. He beats me every trip. Haha.
These two are special friends. Such great people who go all out for you to have a good time.
I cherish our times together and to think that I wouldn't have met them if it wasn't for fly fishing.
There was one more stop on my way home.
I was sure that David would want me to bring home
a cheesecake a couple pieces of cheesecake.
Bye for now, Wydaho!!! You treated me well...
